A New ZVS Tuning Method for Double-Sided LCC Compensated Wireless Power Transfer System
AbstractThis paper presents a new zero voltage switching (ZVS) tuning method for the double-sided inductor/capacitor/capacitor (LCC) compensated wireless power transfer (WPT) system. An additional capacitor is added in the secondary side of the double-sided LCC compensation network in order to tune the network to realize ZVS operation for the primary-side switches. With the proposed tuning method, the turn off current of the primary-side switches at the low input voltage range can be reduced compared with the previous ZVS tuning method. Consequently, the efficiency of the WPT at the low input voltage range is improved. Moreover, the relationship between the input voltage and the output power is more linear than that of the previous ZVS tuning method. In addition, the proposed method has a lower start-up voltage. The analysis and validity of the proposed tuning method are verified by simulation and experimental results. A WPT system with up to 3.5 kW output power is built, and 95.9% overall peak efficiency is achieved. View Full-Text
